Quick question. I've been doing quite a bit of night photography, and I'm somewhat frustrated by the fact that if I take a 30s exposure, it then seems to take 30s to write to the card. If I were to upgrade and use an XQD card, will this dramatically improve, or is that merely for the speed in downloading, or the buffering capacity for rapid bursts?

Also nto thrilled with some of the noise, because with all the talk of iso100,000 I assumes that 6400 would be a piece of cake, but that's a different topic which I will post separately.

Thanks everyone
